Has your Do-It-Yourself Hair Color ended in horrible results? Leave it to us the professionals to fix it. There are several reason for a color correction; a change in season, a reinvention, or perhaps it was a home hair color gone wrong. Whatever the reason here are a few things you should know.
Going from a darker shade to lighter shade – requires the use of a De-colorizer and other materials. The techniques used will vary based on your desired outcome. We prefer to do a strand test to ensure that the hair is healthy enough to go through this lightening process. A small sample of hair is taken (usually from the back of the head) placed in a foil and then processed. Within 20 minutes we will be able to see your hair color history and determine how light we can get the hair without losing the integrity of it. Upon the results of the strand test we will provide you with a rough estimate as to what your hair services will cost, along with recommend products to use at home.
Going from a lighter shade to darker shade – Blonde or light color hair has very little color pigment in it. Applying a darker shade directly to your blonde or light hair will simply make it appear spotted and dull. Therefore, we must fill the hair with the missing underlying pigment using a multi-step process. This is slightly more complicated than a double process and is also priced by the hour. Sometimes a color correction cannot be performed in a single visit. Sometimes it takes a few sessions to achieve in which case we will do all we can and send you home with products made to help revive the health of your hair and get it ready for the follow up visit for your hair services.
